Dogan Holding donates 1 million USD to Somalia

In co-ordinance with the recent Turkey pledge to help with aid to Somalia, Dogan Holding has donated 1 million USD to the campaign to help Somalia.

The money will go to help with delivery of aid to Somalia, the most severe struck country in Africa with millions of people needing aid and suffering from famine. Turkey has recently sent three cargo planes sent with aid to Somalia to help in their time of need.

In further developments, Turkey is to host an international meeting between 57 countries in Istanbul today to discuss collective international efforts in bringing aid to Somalia to end the hunger in Africa. There are currently more than three million people in Somalia alone that are feeling the effects of the drought in Africa, the worst drought to hit the continent in more than 60 years.
